The problem I have with the Veyron is that they had all sorts of targets, but no engineering. Heck, they had the body before they did any aero work!

I suppose in some ways that makes it amazing, but in other ways it's remarkably short sighted.

I saw a Veyron before I knew what it was. I was in Menlo Park, CA and saw it drive by. It look like it had rockets on the back. My wife asked me how much, I figured maybe $300K. Who knew I was off by $1.1M.

Some older guy driving, had to be some Silicon Valley CEO...

I'm taking a fancy to the 2008 Automobile of the year, the Audi R8. Saw one at a dealership in France this last summer. Beautiful car.
Always a fan of just about anything Aston Martin puts out, the Ferrari 430, and am kinda interested in the 2008 Lambo Miura Concept.
And lets not forget about the Lambo Reventon.
And finally, Ive always been in love with the Shelby GT 500 aka "Eleanor." About a year ago I saw Ahman Green piling his family into one in the parking lot of a Best Buy here in Omaha.

The 1970 Impala is still the sexiest body style I've ever seen.

Ha, that and the 1974 VW Thing may be the worst cars ever built.

I have a 2000 Honda S-2000 in perfect condition, so my 2 seater needs are taken care of ... I have a 2005 Acura RL which averages about 16 mpg of premium which I see is up to $4.50 in Southern California, so I've been thinking about a nice Civic Si. I'd consider the EX with nav and 5 speed manual except you can't get a limited slip differential in any Civic except the Si.

If gas were affordable, then I'd say my dream car is a Cobra 427 side oiler, a Ferrari California, or if I were actually going to put my money down for an exotic, I'd get a low mileage late model NSX, black with pimp red interior, 6 speed of course.

If you could afford to buy the 427 cobra, fuel prices wouldn't matter to you.
